The Mo handles quite well on snow and ice,however on ice regardless of 2 wheel of 4 wheel you will still slip and slide like every one else.
I am always chuckling to myself on every snow storm we get here, and the number of SUV's that drive fast because they think they are indestructible in 4 wheel or AWD. They are the ones that slide into the ditch and have to wait for a tow. Always drive to conditions and allow the AWD option assist you.
ok..so i guess ill be ok....ksmurano you made me feel better about my choice of vehicle for my wife, she had a 2002 jeep liberty and that thing was like a tnak in the snow, im confident the murano should be just as good!!!!
